Here

My calendar schedule for this next year is full of possibilities. I’m making lists of new skills I want to learn, places I want to go, and activities I want to enjoy.

It’s hard to believe that I’m already here, staring at the end of my highschool career. As I weigh scholarships and college opportunities, I don’t feel old enough to be at this place in my life. Since my earliest recollections, I’ve always viewed college students as quite ancient and, of course, extremely mature.

By next year I’ll officially have joined the ranks of college students. But I didn’t realize how inexperienced I would feel when I reached this point. Ten years ago, I thought that when I was seventeen I would have all the knowledge I would ever need. Now I realize how little I know, and how much there is to learn.

I’m excited to be here, at this point in my life. I know that the next few years will bring many challenges and new experiences. But right now I’ll just enjoy being here, in this transition stage of my life. Because my “here” is pretty awesome.

    Can I just say… I’m 32 with 4 small children and I still feel exactly the same way you do? 🙂 I think most of us feel the same way, no one ever really feels grown up (even my husband’s grandfather has confessed this and he’s 90!)
    Be confident in who you are and always humble enough to know you don’t know it all and please really DO enjoy where you are and college! I love where I am now, but college truly was some of the best (and hardest in a good way) years of my life!
